Scarborough’s Reading Rope (2001) remains a current and significant theoretical model in applying the Science of Reading in educational settings. The Reading Rope was developed by Hollis Scarborough, PhD, to identify and visualize the components of skilled reading. In these workshops, Molly Ness, PhD, teacher educator, literacy researcher, and author, will identify the importance of the Reading Rope for reading education, tie each strand of the rope to its specific skillset, and offer strategies and techniques that support their effective implementation in general education and special education classrooms in pre-kindergarten to grade 3.
